aj47 Posted October 1, 2006 Share Posted October 1, 2006 As recently I’ve been getting slightly bored of where I live/England in general, a few months ago I decided to defer my entry to Uni and take a gap year to go travelling. I’m currently working stupid amount of hours to save up for this but I still need to work out where I’m gonna go. I may travel with a friend but I’d rather have the freedom to go where and do what I want so I will most likely travel by myself. Anyway I’m in desperate need of some inspiration and or tips on travelling so I thought to be great to hear about the places you've travelled to before. What it was like, what was good, what was bad etc?. I'll start. For me, so far Russia was probably the most amazing place I've travelled to, which I went to over the summer to visit/travel with my brother who’s living in Moscow. We spent the first week going north through Moscow, Novgorod and St Petersburg, ending up in lake Ladoga close to the borders of Finland. I then left my brother and spent the last week in Cheboksary in Chuvasia which was slightly daunting as my Russian vocabulary was.. well non existent. Anyway all of the trip was amazing but in particular St Petersburg which I’d loved to go back to. Meeting Russian people also made me realise why people think of the English as being stuffy….they are. It’s only when you meet people who aren’t afraid to show there emotions or speak their mind that you realise it unnecessary polite the English can be. Here’s a few pics I uploaded if anyone wants to see… http://www.flickr.com/photos/73047976@N00/ and …. http://s85.photobucket.com/albums/k80/aj47_01/ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
